What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Hello Welshguy,

I am a little confused by your wife's actions (telephone calls you wrote about), reading your description of your marriage I am also wondering what on earth went so wrong? Did you both talk about seeking counselling? The first step in the divorce is the petition and then the Decree Nisi, which is probably the sitting on the 10th March you speak of. I am not one to advocate false hope but before this there is still a chance of you both seeking reconcilliation - I feel very strongly about people doing EVERYTHING they can before heading for divorce... that way there can be no recriminations at a later date. Have you tried writing to your wife, not suggesting grovelling here, just writing - that way she will have time to read and digest/deal with things - then suggest meeting up. It seems you are not angry with each other - just sad that this is happening - but what I don't understand is that if you both feel like this why can't it be put right?

I am trying hard not to interfere but I can feel your sadness coming across and I just want to try and help!
